A very lovely stay
From start to finish fabulous. Easy and simple booking, friendly and helpful staff. We enjoyed a 2 night stay b&b and added on a lovely meal on our first night. The food was tasty and outstanding. Surrounding grounds were beautiful & it’s perfect location to explore north wales. Also felt safe with all the Covid regulations in place.
